..and I had the best day. I got up and had my coffee while sitting on the deck looking out over the yard and at the gardens. Black eyed susans are in bloom along with double tiger lilies, turban lilies, gladiolas, zinnias, oriental lilies, purple cone flower and my beautiful day lilies. I had taken a trip to Tranquil Lake Nursery on Sunday and picked up 6 new day lilies. I have been going there for years. I should have taken pictures the fields in bloom are so beautiful and fragrant. So anyway I decide I am putting on my garden clothes, no makeup and just staying in the garden for the day.( for me this is a real treat with my job it is hard to take a day off) I have gardens that need to be reworked and slug plants that need to be removed.
Years ago I would take any plant that anyone was giving away....not always the best idea. Sometimes a wonderful idea. Anyways I have some great plants with some great memories of some wonderful people. Then I have some plants
This is "Christmas Wreath"These are some of my favorites in bloom right now and I have not always kept track of the names. I am working on this now, going back over notes and such. I need to keep better records. When my garden club friends come over they ask the names and I am tired of saying Oh, ah, I don't know.
